DEPAL Multiplier Events in Ermoupoli
Vardakeios School organised two Multiplier Events in February 2022. The first one was held at the Special Vocational Secondary and High School of Ermoupoli on the 4th of February and was attended only by the teachers of the School and the second one was held at Vardakeios School on the 12th of February and was open to all the teachers and educators of the island.
During the meetings Eugenia Kollia and Maria Krina, the facilitators of the event, explained the aims and all the achievements of the project focusing on the two outputs (Guide and Toolkit) which are available on DEPAL platform. The facilitators used a variety of activities from the resources and achieved to create in short time an engaged group who worked with great mood. The group interacted all together and in smaller groups and created three stories combined with photos. They really enjoyed the process and gave a very positive feedback about the session. They showed interest to use the methodology and the activities with their own groups. They expressed also their gratitude for the chance they had to work in a participatory mode for the first time after the pandemic. It was a great boost for a restart on face to face educational processes.
With these activities Vardakeios streghtened the bonding with specific schools of the island that work with adults, exchanged information and made plans for future collaborations.
